Adagio in E Major for violin and orchestra K261
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
It's not often that Mozart has a new entry — but here's one! 8th of Mozart's 19 entries.
In addition to his five complete violin concertos, Mozart composed a few separate movements. After playing the Concerto No. 5, Italian virtuoso Antonio Brunetti wasn't satisfied with the slow movement, and requested a replacement. And a good job he did too, as the beautiful Adagio in A major was born. Mozart didn't use the key of A major again until his Piano Concerto No. 12, written in 1782.
